So, is this a dwarf variety, and is it a biennial or perennial?

Mine is 4 years old, its about 3' high its getting a bit leggy and woody so I have just planted 2 replacments. On tresco ive seen them up to around 6' they also replace them every few years because they become tired and untidy. It will take a light frost but I over winter mine in a cool greenhouse and put outside as early as poss in spring.

I'm looking forward to the delights of tour greenhouses this summer!
The four seeds that I "abused" have all germinated.

The large Echiums are majestic, aren't they? One of my dream plants to grow,my space is just to small unfortunately.
